“Bread” – Fearless #1

Posted on Wednesday February 21st, 2018

Fearless (plain) - 2

We begin the season of Lent 2018 with the story of the Temptation of Jesus in the Wilderness.  “Bread” is the first message in the Fearless series.  It has been re-recorded from February 18 worship @ Erma Tabernacle.  Matthew chapter 4, verses 1 through 11 (Mt 4:1-11) is the core biblical text.

This message is taken from the Gospel of Matthew.  The remaining ones in the series will be from the Gospel of John.  If you have questions, comments, or feedback, drop me an e-mail.  Let’s start a conversation.

Lenten Blessings,

Pastor Glenn (


“About Face” – for Transfiguration Sunday

Posted on Tuesday February 6th, 2018

Image - Transfiguration (drawing)

We are in-between series at Erma Tabernacle.  Here is a stand-alone message for Transfiguration Sunday, re-recorded from February 4.  There is a lot of back-and-forth between the story from the Gospel of Mark (chapter 9, verses 2 through 8) and the Old Testament.  At least in the video, if I am speaking too fast then you always can go back to check the references.

For Lent 2018, beginning February 18, we will be starting a new series – Fearless: The Courage to Question.  Keep checking back for weekly (or most weekly) messages.

Daily Blessings,

“Live” – Water & Roots #3

Posted on Monday January 29th, 2018

Water & Roots 5 (edit)

Here is the 3rd and final message in the Water & Roots series on rediscovering our baptism.  This series has been offered by our Greater New Jersey Conference of the United Methodist Church.  “Live” is the title I’ve given to this re-recorded message from January 28 at Erma Tabernacle.  Afterwards, we celebrated in the Reaffirmation of Baptismal Covenant of the vows either we took or were taken on our behalf.

If you have been baptized and want to share your story, I am available to listen.  If you have yet to be baptized, and desire more information, I’d also want to hear from you as well.

Daily Blessings,

Pastor Glenn (

“Newly Reconditioned” – 1st of 2018

Posted on Wednesday January 10th, 2018

Using Ephesians chapter 3, this re-recorded message from January 7 worship at Erma Tabernacle looks back at 2017 and visions forward into 2018.  “Newly Reconditioned” is both a stand-alone and a moving -ahead call to action. I realize that several who cannot attend weekly worship view these videos.  Others who are not connected to Erma […]

“The Prophecies” – Christmas Puzzle #3

Posted on Monday December 18th, 2017

The title of this message can go either way – Promises are Prophecies fulfilled, right?  “The Prophecies” is #3 in our Advent 2017 series – The Christmas Puzzle. Along with comparing Matthew chapter 2 with Micah chapter 5, there is a strong emphasis on the “single thread” of the 66 books of the Bible telling […]
